Miu Miu AW09: “She is femme fatale” says Mrs. Prada.



There are many things at work in this collection that intrigue me. Firstly, the exploration of animal: fur or bastardised in prints, but fake-looking prints, stretched so they have just a passing resemblance to the original.

Secondly, hair clips on coats and hefty sized sequins on purses. The above and close-up shot show these clips neatly sewn on impeccable wool. 

Mrs. Prada’s proposal: a woman can take control of her life / of men, through seduction; using charms and precious fur and shiny bits.

This is a process of seduction too: mink heels! We don’t need mink heels, but mink heels we will have. 

The longer skirts with sheer blouses and ‘everyday’ bras were just beautiful – a NEW WAY for eveningwear. A new silhouette. 

So, what are you going to do?

    Everyday bra? Kindly enlighten. Does this mean there are certain bras which, like one’s diamonds, must not be worn before 6pm?

    An ‘everyday bra’ is a bra for every day that looks everyday. The inverted comma suggests a turn-of-phrase out of context.

    The above is clearly nonsense.

    Thank you, caller!

  3. The fur heels are jolly practical for people like me who suffer from cold feet. Thank you Mrs P.

  4. Jordan donned this pair of shoes, the Nike oxygen Jordan XIX, all through the 2003-2004 NBA season. This pair of sneakers is definitely an awesome offer over an eyesore to say the least. The the front element belonging to the tongue arrives up way as well high, and that fence like design and design going lower it is terrible. There may be considered a velcro strap, that is not assisting the design’s situation either. It helps make the element it is linked to actual physical appearance like just one huge flap is covering the true shoe. It is challenging to discover something excellent to say concerning the way in which this pair looks. This just one could have benefited from the vital idea change.
